      What are your motivations for supporting one team vs another? Appreciation for the coach, personality or skills? Appreciation for the top team player or players? I don't feel any particular affinity for the teams which seem 100% arbitrary to me. I love to see the games with such awesome players and the game formats are very nice , but the teams seem superfluous and fake. Thoughts? It also seems to have been a great training camp for all the players, and built a place for friendships among them to grow, which the heavily nationalist ITTF needs badly. It would be cool for T2 to set up training sessions on Youtube with paired experts from among the players. And I'm fine with their announcer to participate all the time, maybe with Adam Bobrow too.

      I wish this tournament attracted more viewers, because it does deserve it. Top players, top venue, rules welcome fast paced play etc. Go team Maze!

      usually one of the team is a little bit more likeable overall, personality wise.

      That would be soo cool!
      I really love pro player training videos. One can learn so much!
      Bobrow is a good idea too, because he really knows many players personally

      The livestream gets not so much views but the video uploads on youtube in shortforms of the single matches are much more popular than the livestream

      I am disappointed that the poll is so dismissive of the women. Either put all the names in, or just leave it at the team name. Frankly, it is the women who have brought this competition, which I have enjoyed immensely, to life. The star of the show is probably Bernadette Szocs, who improved incredibly over the course of the season, and was described by the commentator as the heart and soul of her team. And yes, I am just talking about her table tennis playing. But most of the women have been more entertaining than their male counterparts, drawing the spectators into the narrative and making the impersonal personal.

      The teams are so well balanced arent they? It's so hard to decide which team to go for, Im just keen for some Dima and Jun & Timo and Jun showdowns! Also keen to watch Hayata play against Bernadette Szocs !
